Default Generic Minoxidil Foam at Costco

Hey guys,

I just got back from Costco and found that they are now selling the new generic minoxidil foam. The best part? Only 48.99 for 6 bottles!

Great news Dave! That's the same price for only 3 bottles of the brand name stuff, so the generic is half price.

Thanks for sharing. Honestly speaking, I was always skeptical with using Rogaine liquid formula in the morning as it screws the hair style and make the hair looks brittle but when the Foam came, it made me never think about appearance. Its really perfect and works as hair mousse. Unfortunately its not available in the Middle East as the liquid one which pushes me to order online always. Its very pleasing to know that there is a generic foam minoxidil, if I was in US I will be definitely a long term customer. Foam rocks.

Kirkland's liquid Minoxidil is highly rated, so I imagine their foam is just as good. Kirkland products are made by Perrigo, one of the largest generic pharmaceutical companies in the world.
